Your Help is Needed

We only have 1 driver each way who has confirmed they can help on this coming weekend camping trip. Thanks Ruth & Werner.

We still need 3 drivers up and 3 drivers back. Its only an hour trip (give or take)

If we do NOT get enough of drivers, getting your son to and from camp will fall back on the parents & the trip is non-refundable as food has already been purchased. 

We don’t ask for much from our parents as usually we have enough of drivers with the adults that are going, unfortunately for this trip, that is not the case. 

Any questions direct to Mike

Thank You’s & Friday Update

We wanted to take a moment to thank the leaders that made Sea Base possible, without them we would not have been able to take 17 boys. Thank you to: Jim, John, Pat, Mike, Anthony, James & Eric. 

Additionally, we would like to thank everyone who attended the trip for their donation, due to the trip overage. With that money the troop was able to purchase 6 tents & 4 first aid kits.
